As a nurse, it is my job to help with this thought process and converse with my client about their life. On major end of life issue is who will take care of the older adult when they are no longer able to take care of themselves. Older adults will often go to retirement homes, nursing homes, or other facilities based on the level of skilled care they need and their level of independence.
